Hand Sanitizers — Should You Use It, You Decide


Hand Sanitizers — Should You Use It, You Decide

We have been taught to have clean hands from a young age. Hand sanitizers are thought to be an easy solution, convenient for traveling or to use when the public bathroom is out of soap.

There is one catch: hand sanitizers commonly sold may actually not be making your hands cleaner and may actually not be good for your health.

True, hand sanitizer may kill some bacteria. However, by using it, you may actually make the bacteria on your hands resistant to the sanitizer you’re trying to kill the germs with. These bacteria can become treatment-resistant.

Having germs that can’t be “killed off” could have negative health consequences.

You should also consider what chemicals might be in these sanitizers. Do you want them seeping into your skin?

The decision is yours, but why not stick to good, old-fashioned soap and water to clean your hands?
